New Frontiers in Public Health journal launched

Frontiers, one of the world's fastest-growing Open Access publishers and among the largest social networking platforms for researchers, announces the launch of a new journal, Frontiers in Public Health.

Frontiers in Public Health will publish high quality, rigorously peer-reviewed articles on the most outstanding discoveries and leading thoughts across the entire research spectrum of Public Health.

On the Frontiers interactive web platform, diverse and emerging research areas will come together to empower the public health community to steer research, policy, debate and intervention toward the future, with a range of open research and communication tools.

Frontiers recently announced a strategic partnership with Nature Publishing Group, to bring its publishing model for interactive peer review and open science communication to the field of public and global health. Frontiers in Public Health will join Frontiers' other highly successful journals in medicine and the life sciences, including such widely read titles as Frontiers in Neuroscience.

Frontiers in Public Health is now open for submissions! Initial sections, with more to follow, include:

  • Frontiers in Child Health and Human Development (Editor-in-Chief: Joav Merrick)
  • Frontiers in Epidemiology (Editor-in-Chief: Jimmy Efird)
  • Frontiers in Public Health Education and Promotion (Editors-in-Chief: Connie Evashwick and Marcia Ory)
  • Frontiers in Diabetes (Editor-in-Chief: Aaron Vinik)
  • Frontiers in HIV/AIDS (Editor-in-Chief: Frank Miedema)
  • Frontiers in Immunotherapies and Vaccines (Editor-in-Chief: Jean-Luc Teillaud)

Frontiers' real-time and interactive peer review enables fast, fair and constructive review of a range of article types. With an average of three months from submission to final decision for a paper, articles are published quickly, under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license, and are freely available to an international audience.

"Publishing high quality, peer reviewed papers on a fast and rolling basis with a strong international reach is of paramount importance to the public health research community," said Prof. Joav Merrick, Editor-in-Chief of Frontiers in Public Health, and the founder and Director of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development in Israel.

"Frontiers' focus on harnessing the indispensable power of the internet and growing range online tools to carry out peer review, publication and dissemination of research will equip public health researchers to make the profound changes that are expected of them today," explained Prof. Merrick.

"Authors will retain copyright to their work, and the use of the Creative Commons Attribution license means that there will be no barriers to disseminating research as quickly, efficiently and widely as possible for the benefits of not only the scholarly community, but also for policy-makers, non-governmental organizations, citizens and patients globally," he added.
